The Top-10 Incidentally Fat Characters in Pop Culture
It’s always bugged me that fat characters in movies and TV were never just incidentally fat. Either their fatness was an indicator of their comic, buffoonish gluttony, or it was an indicator of their wicked, cigar-chomping hedonism. And while the fat men were either buffoons or villains, the fat women had it even worse, being either greedy harpies or weepy wannabes.
There are a few glimmers of fat hope out in the world, though, and I wrote down a top-10 list for the good people at Geekscape.net outlining the ten best fat character from popular media that are incidentally fat. There are more than you think and the fat heroes are an inspiration for fat kids, as well as a more healthy look at the modern-day human form. You can read the article by following the link below.
